Eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly can do wonders for your health and for your body (not to mention your sense of self-confidence). But all too often and despite our best efforts at leading a healthy lifestyle, we’re left with areas of isolated, stubborn fat that just refuse to budge, no matter how much cardio we do or how many calories we cut. And that can be more than just a little discouraging.
At the Anti-Aging Institute, we understand how those stubborn fat pockets can work to derail all your hard work and leave you feeling defeated and disappointed. But we have good news for you: With SculpSure® body sculpting, we can help you get rid of those resistant pockets of fatty tissue, slimming down your thighs, tummy, waist, flanks, and other specific areas of your body so you look sleeker, slimmer, and more toned. And best of all, with SculpSure, there are no incisions, no sutures, no anesthesia, and no surgery, which means you don’t have to worry about a prolonged and painful recovery, scars, or the risk of infection. That’s because SculpSure works by using laser energy to gently but effectively melt away problem fat so your sleeker contours are finally revealed. Here’s how it works.
Bid farewell to stubborn fat — for good
First things first: Non-invasive SculpSure is FDA approved to treat stubborn pockets of fat, which means you can feel confident about your results and about the treatment itself. The SculpSure system uses specific wavelengths of laser energy to achieve very precise targeting of fatty cells deep beneath your skin. The energy emitted by the SculpSure laser has an affinity for fat cells, which means it’s attracted to those cells more than other tissues. That means the laser heat is absorbed by the fat cells while other types of cells are unaffected by the treatment.
As the laser energy enters the fat cells, it gently heats them, breaking down the cell walls so the fatty contents are dispersed. Over the next few weeks, your body’s lymphatic system picks up the debris and carries it away to be metabolized and flushed from the body naturally. Because of the way SculpSure works, it’s intended to target smaller pockets of fat, which means it’s ideal for people who are at or near their ideal weight and body shape who aren’t looking to shed massive amount of fat and weight, but who want to tone up and slim down specific ares, like the tummy or waist.
What to expect during and after treatment
Before your treatment begins, the SculpSure applicators will be applied to your skin directly over the treatment site. You’ll relax and recline while the applicators do the work, releasing controlled streams of laser energy that are absorbed by the fat cells below your skin’s surface. During treatment, you’ll experience alternating waves of warmth and coolness which most patients find comfortable and relaxing. Treatment sessions take about a half hour, and there’s no downtime or recovery time so you can get back to your regular routine.
Since SculpSure relies on your body’s lymphatic system to remove the debris that’s left after treatment, it takes a few weeks to see your initial results. Most patients begin to see results at about six weeks after their treatment with improvements continuing for another four to six weeks or so. Once the fat cells are melted away, they’re gone for good. And even better: You can refine your results even further with additional sessions if you have a lot of stubborn fat you want to get rid of.
